Classy Chicken Salad

This was a very interesting test for me. I usually am not a fan of fruits mixed with meat...let alone meat and fruit with sour cream...I was definitely happy I tried this recipe.
It's a very classy chicken salad. I would said it's good enough to serve at a dinner party even! If you don't like as much moisture to the salad you can back down the sour cream and mayo to 3/4 cup each. I think the next time I make it that's what  I will do. But all in all, it was a wonderful summer lunch on a hot day here in Iowa.
I used HyVee's Bakery Bread - Marble Rye

1 lb. cooked chicken, shredded
1 1/2 cups pecans, finely chopped
2-3 stalks of celery, chopped
Red grapes, sliced in half (half bag)
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

1 cup mayo

  1. Combine everything in a large mixing bowl. Stir until everything is combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Best to let flavors sit. Serve with bread.

  1. Yum! I love chicken salad! We also do a lot off egg salad in the summer as well.
